Please don't post this, as it is extremely missleading. 1) I've said it numerous times, if you see a dog, ditch your weed. Most handlers will not be as nice to you, or as stupid, as the one you encountered. 2) Checked baggage has a much, much higher probability of getting sniffed by a dog than passengers at the security checkpoint. 3) Excuses never work. Everyone has an excuse, and cops don't want to hear it.
